Water Cycles and CA Water Conservation Act of 2009

California law is directing us toward respect for the earth, and understanding of our water cycle.  Much of the state south of Sacramento and Santa Cruz is technically desert, and in that area, we must respect those natural water limits, while working to enhance our ability to retain, cleanse, and use the ambient rainwater and runoff that runs through our area(s)

For example:

Senate Bill x7-7 enacted in 2009 (Chapter 4, Statutes of 2009 Seventh Extraordinary Session) requires the state to achieve a 20% reduction in urban per capita water use by December 31, 2020. The law establishes that the measure of increased efficiency is on a per capita basis. The law also requires the state to make incremental progress towards this goal by reducing per capita water use by at least 10% on or before December 31, 2015." (18 March 2010)
